Why Choose Turf for Your Specific Application?
Why should you choose turf over seeding? Seeding is certainly more affordable; however, there are problems here. For instance, it can take a very long time for grass seeds to sprout and even then you have no guarantee that you’ll have even coverage. You also have the problem of birds eating the grass seed. Turf doesn’t have these problems. You simply unroll the turf where you want it and use turf supplies to ensure that it remains healthy.
What Type of Turf Supplies Do You Need?
Installing turf and ensuring that it has the best chance to grow and remain healthy means using the right turf supplies from the outset. Most types of turf will require several basic types of turf supplies, including soil amendments and fertilizer. To fertilize your turf, it is best to choose a spreader rather than applying it by hand. You’ll find turf supplies for spreading fertilizer that can be pushed/pulled, as well as those that attach to tractors and mowers for easier operation.
You’ll also need to consider irrigation equipment and supplies to make sure that your turf is watered correctly – a sprinkler system can work well for larger applications, though small areas can make use of drip irrigation techniques. You also need to consider pest control for your turf. Turf supplies to help control snails, ticks and other unwanted pests are widely available, and include pre-emergent and chemical turf supplies for insects (and weeds, as well).
Animal Pest Control for Turf
Finally, in addition to weeds and insects, you’ll find that maintaining your turf will require that you use turf supplies designed to help eliminate unwanted animal pests. Gophers, moles, voles, rabbits, field mice and other rodents can easily destroy your turf and can even invade buildings – using turf supplies to control and prevent animal pests will help ensure healthy turf and a safe environment, as well.
